MLB.com’s Corey Brock says the Padres made a preliminary offer to Kosuke Fukudome for three years. His source indicates it could be for around $24MM, but the Padres have some flexibility on that. As you know, Fukudome wants exactly three years on his deal. I wouldn’t be surprised to see it climb to $36MM.
The Padres were also said to be close to a deal for Luke Scott, but it seems that deal died.
